BRAD Coles is now the edi­tor and pub­lisher of Aus­tralian BridgeMagazine, hav­ing taken over from yours truly. I pub­lished the mag­a­zine from 1999 un­til De­cem­ber last year, a to­tal of 101 is­sues. I thought it was time for a change. It may be a priv­i­lege to pro­duce the na­tional mag­a­zine, but it can also be hard work. Ron Klinger, who pub­lished the mag­a­zine from 1972 un­til 1984, said that it was the sec­ond-hap­pi­est day in his life when he ac­quired the mag­a­zine. The hap­pi­est was when he sold it.

Coles is no slouch at the pub­lish­ing busi­ness as his first is­sue has shown. He has added a bid­ding chal­lenge fea­ture and a reg­u­lar col­umn from Boye Bro­ge­land of Nor­way. Bro­ge­land is a for­mer world cham­pion who has a unique ap­proach to the game. He also pub­lishes the Nor­we­gian na­tional bridge mag­a­zine. Coles has also brought back the Ab­bot with his amus­ing ex­ploits at the Monastery of St Ti­tus from English writer David Bird. The Ab­bot is South on deal one.
